International Service Projects and Activities

WHF continues to build on current successes, expand into new countries, and increase membership.

In September 2008, 25 Health Fair Center leaders traveled to Dubna in Western Russia and attended the First

Annual Training Seminar. The first seminar was a huge success and lead to plans for a Second Annual Training

Seminar.

Rotarians in Mexico have continued their successful health fairs in the Merida area of Cancun, and

Villahermosa, Tabasco; there has also been activity in Celaya.

The government of Fiji has taken over most of the health fair operations started by Suva and Denver Rotarians,

but a few Rotary clubs still produce annual fairs.

    In Alaska we have the ability to catch and eat lots of fresh fish. Great to see a site with updates on Rotary Health Fairs.
